PIRATES, PRIZES AND PUMPKINS ON OFFER AT FAMILY FRIGHT FEST…
A HALLOWEEN adventure for the whole family is to return to the North East this autumn – bigger and better than ever before.
In October Lintz Hall Farm, Burnopfield will host its Family Fright Fest, a day packed with terrifying treats suitable for youngsters of all ages.
And that’s good news for anyone wanting to enjoy some Halloween fun in the run up to the scariest day of the year.
Family Fright Fest will launch on 22 October and then be held on 23, 29 and 30 October, following in the footsteps of the previous three events which were complete sell-outs.
Along with a full programme of stage shows, featuring everyone from favourite costumed characters to magic, from a superhero spectacular to a talent extravaganza, guests can also enjoy a range of exciting attractions.
They include the brand new pirate galleon, where visitors can step aboard a 70 feet long ship and visit a pirate town and the chance to visit the IScream maze, toned down from the adult version to make it child friendly.
All youngsters will also be able to visit the pumpkin patch and pick their very own pumpkin with options to visit the fun and games barn, head to the tipi and join the wizard school or visit the fairground rides.
Those who embrace the experience and turn up in fancy dress may also find themselves a prize winner, with a number of giveaways planned for the day.
Visitors will also have access to the Street Food Village which features everything from burgers to fish and chips, duck wraps and loaded fried to parmos, pizza and doughnuts.
Tickets for the event are now on sale, at £9 for children aged one to 15 and £12 for adults. There are also family tickets available, at £32 for a family of four and £39 for a family of five.

“ Family Fright Fest events are always really popular and sell out,” said Christiano Crawford, one of the directors of 700 Acres which runs the Family Fright Fest and Psycho Path, the adults only scare park which also takes place at the site.
“It’s going to be even more spectacular this year round as we’ve got more attractions than ever before, including our amazing pirate ship.
“We’ve had a fantastic response to it so far and we can’t wait for everyone to come along and enjoy it.”
Gates open each day at 11am and the event runs until 4pm.
Tickets are also still available for Psycho Path, which begins on 30 September and then runs every weekend until 31 October, ending in The Big Blaze event on 5 November. For further information visit www.psyco-path.co.uk
